Can anyone jot down a quick, off of your head, top 5, essential must-have list of JGB shows? (electric only)

I have had 3.18.78 in constant rotation in my car cd changer for about a year now. I never grow tired of it. There is an official release here:
http://stores.musictoday.com/store/product.asp?band_id=707&dept_id=3062&pf_id=JYCD31&sfid=2

I can burn a copy of the non-released FM version if you want.

Oh yes, an excellent show indeed. Have the official release already and agree it's a keeper. Thanks for the offer anyway, wineland!

I had to use my old work laptop today since I left the new one at home. I just found 3.19.78 on it. I haven't listened to it in months. The sound is pretty darn good despite the two cassette gens. You are welcome to it as well, just say the word.

grendelschoice: the best I can do right now are the following (which all, except one, happen to be commercially released offerings)

1973-07-10,11 (Keystone) with Merle Saunders; originally released as double-LP; now two separate cd's "Live at the Keystone" Vol.1 and Vol. 2
http://www.deaddisc.com/disc/Live_At_The_Keystone_Vol_1.htm
http://www.deaddisc.com/disc/Live_At_The_Keystone_Vol_2.htm


1976-05-12 (Orpheum Theatre, SF) double-CD: "Don't Let Go"
http://www.deaddisc.com/disc/Dont_Let_Go.htm ("must-have")

1977-07-29,30 (Theatre 1839, SF) three-CD: "Pure Jerry: Theatre 1839, San Francisco" ("Stir It Up," "Let Me Roll It," and a 27:00-min "Don't Let Go" are just three examples)
http://www.deaddisc.com/disc/Pure_Jerry_Theatre_1839.htm

1980-02-28 (Kean College, New Jersey) another 3-cd release: "After Midnight: Kean College, 2/28/80) --- no back-up vocalists; just a quartet (includes "After Midnight > Eleanor Rigby instrumental > After Midnight," "Mission in the Rain," as well as two tunes with Hunter on vocals)
http://www.deaddisc.com/disc/Pure_Jerry_After_Midnight.htm

1980-02-15 (late show; Boston - Orpheum Theatre) === same band as above; includes the "After Midnight" trifecta as well with a phenomenal closing jam.

Unfortunately I don't have specific dates with me, but there are some priceless shows with Nickey Hopkins on keyboards (1975-08-05 through 1975-12-31).

Don't have exact dates right now but there are some sweet shows during the the year that Maria Muldaur joined Donna on back-up vocals (1977-08-12 through 1978-11-04)

8.24.91 wasn't great. It's just available. I'll take 8.10.91 over that one any day. But most memorable to me is 11.11.94 at the H.J.K. The show is just plain sick. 12.22.90 (or is it 12.23?) at SF Civic Auditorium is excellent as well. 4.20.91 was a great one to attend as well.

ganges:
Thanks a lot for filling-in the holes in my list for "grendelschoice." You are absolutely correct in stating that there are some great shows in the later years. Nov. 1993 (Worcester Centrum) and others == towards the end of the show he had the crowd singing the chorus to one or two tunes and it was priceless to see him filled with so much joy.

Unfortunately after 1993 he played only two shows outside of California ('94 in Arizona and Nevada).

Thank you for everything, --- AshesRising

I don't know what it is about 3-8-80, but this is the JGB show I pull out when I need my attitude adjusted.
